Yardley Primary School

Enabling children to reach their full potential


PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


For 2021-22 Yardley Primary School received £20606 for our PE and Sport premium grant.


The amount was spent in full to contribute to covering the costs of the part-time specialist sports coach (who works 3 and half days a week), and football, netball and dance coaches who teach the after-school clubs.


The school offers 8 after school sports activities, fully funded by the school, with no cost to parents.


Pupils from Years 1 to 6 have the opportunity to attend at least one club a week. Sometimes, if clubs are oversubscribed then pupil will take part in the club for half the school year and then another set of children from the same year group will have the opportunity to take part.


Our high commitment to and participation in inter school sports competitions can be evidenced by the results our teams and individuals achieve. 


The school has been very successful in inter-sport competitions within Waltham Forest over the 2021-22 academic year. There has been a smaller calender of events than previously as schools return to normal. Results so far have included;


Waltham Forest year 2 cross country - Girls' team 1st, Boys' teams 1st and 3rd. Boys' individual gold, silver and bronze.

KS2 Table Tennis - Boys' teams 1st and 2nd. Girls' team 1st

KS2 Orion Harriers cross country - Girls' team 3rd. Individual bronze (Boys' race was null and void).

KS2 Sportshall athletics - Overall winners and represented Waltham Forest at London finals.

Waltham Forest KS2 cross country - Boys' and girls' teams 2nd. Boys' individual bronze.

Year 6 netball - 3rd place.


We have also competed in Year 4 and Year 6 boys' football competitions, Year 5/6 Girls' football and basketball. 


Swimming take place for Year 5 and Year 6 pupils. They follow and intensive 2 week program where they swim for an hour every day which results in the majority of pupils being able to swim a length of the pool by the end of Year 6.


We also run an in-school KS2 cross country around the school grounds each year and our annual Year 6 Tug-of-War competition.


In the last full year before Covid, we were awarded the School Games silver award as result of our participation in inter-school competitions, our in-school events and our older pupils' work as sports leaders to support the development of others. 


Sustainability is provided by class teachers co-teaching with a specialist sports coach during the lesson time to improve their own teaching of gymnastics, athletics, dance and a range of sports. The PE timetable is rotated termly so that all children receive access to being taught by the specialist coach throughout the year.
